Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before You Decide To Divorce

Man tapping on ipad with question marks floating on top.

Have you decided that you feel a divorce is the best path forward in 2022?

Your emotions are on overload and spread too thin to think anymore, but now is the time to take a pause and ask yourself several questions BEFORE you put in motion a divorce.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Who am I with my spouse?
  • How do I feel about myself when I’m with them?
  • What have we done to try to repair the marriage?
  • What made me fall in love with my spouse?
  • Is that still there?

While each divorce is different, for the most part this list is not all the questions you should ask, but it’s a start. If you are considering a divorce, make sure to research the collaborative divorce process for a more peaceful, respectful divorce process.

This process utilizes a non-adversarial, no court approach to divorce by bringing in different professionals, such as a financial neutral, possibly a divorce coach and/or child specialist depending upon the situation, along with an attorney for each spouse who work together on your behalf to draft agreements that each person agrees to.

When you utilize the experts in the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association, we will assist you with your divorce and will work to help facilitate an agreement that both of you agree upon without appearing in court.
